Join the Coldest Night of the Year Walk with Seniors Services Society on Saturday Feb. 25th! The walk raises money for programs that help seniors who are homeless or in housing crisis. Each month Seniors Services hears from up to 200 homeless or at risk seniors across metro Vancouver, and the city with the second highest call volume is New Westminster.
Bundle up and walk 2, 5 or 10km in Downtown New West - and wrap it up with a hot meal at the River Market.
